          It most certainly is! Mio's my first 5th Anniversary figure from this particular set, though I do have Azusa from the SQ Quality crane game set for the other 5th Anniversary set.

          Come to think about it, I've been wondering about what would be the best place to get legit anime merch... I think I'd like to treat myself to some of them this birthday. (This include anime soundtracks and image song albums.)

            Pretty sure that's pretty costly given we're separated by a plane trip.

            Lately I've been thinking that following my gut is probably something very good to do when it comes to finding anime to watch. I haven't really found any misses yet even as I'm watching Myriad Colours Phantom World - pretty much the only one I've taken real issues is Attack on Titan's S2, which I plan to go back once I finish S1 first.

            If you want physical OSTs CDJapan is a good place to shop I think. You can also buy a lot of anime music on iTunes these days as well.

              I think I'll probably simultaneously drop if S1 ends up not getting my attention, to be honest.

                Loserneko making an appearance in this week's Erdogan-sensei. Pretty good but i do genuinely not like myself for enjoying this show.

                You're probably waiting for the return of this one (even though I'm pretty sure her stand-in has already arrived):



                I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure we're just watching a repackaged OreImo. Which I mostly enjoyed, but the show also genuinely makes me uncomfortable at times.

                Editor's smug face alone from the latest episode may make the show worth it, though.

                AmiAmi, Amazon for your country, CDJapan, Tokyo Otaku Mode, Mandarake, Animate, and Hobby Life Japan are all places I just thought of off the top of my head. I'm sure you can buy from at least one of those.

                  Context needed.

                  Also Gigguk's video probably sums up why you and I are actually watching the show: because anime is trash and so are we.

                    Does anyone know a generic shounen action anime I could watch mindlessly? Something like Naruto or Bleach (how they used to be at least), ongoing stuff only preferably.

                      One Piece is the obvious choice but I can't believe you don't already have an opinion on that if you've seen Naruto and Bleach.

                      I think Dragon Ball is the only other long running battle shounen that's still airing. Well, that and the second season of HeroAca, but that only has about 35 episodes atm,

                      I'd suggest watching something completed, like Kekkaishi (underrated) or Hajime no ippo. Ippo is over 3 seasons but altogether it has something like 125 episodes.

                        Tried getting into OP but the art threw me off so much. Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'll try Hero Academia.

                        The art style put me off for the longest while, too, but it's worth it.

                          Also back from my anime convention (A-Kon 28). Merch haul: https://imgur.com/a/dXZKQ

                          Personal favorites are the "You're a little rattata!" poster, the "Your favorite anime sucks" poster, and the 6 jumbo nesoberi plushes I picked up.

                            I thought the future - and present - of anime was to be an unfinished marketing device for manga and light novels.

                            I miss the days when Western cartoons were actually good. Those actually got finished. Except for when they got cancelled, like the 2002 Masters of the Universe reboot...

                            I, uh, basically haven't watched any western cartoons from end to end aside from Symbionic Titan in the last 10 years so I have nothing to contribute about quality of anything present or past.
